I have my father's Seiko 6619-8060 MACV-SOG wristwatch, acquired in Viet
Nam.  Somewhat rare, in that it has numerals instead of marks.

Here's an article for the curious:

The SOG is an indication of the unit he was in, Special Ops Group.  They
flew C-130 aircraft, but not transports.

It needs some professional attention, and I'm trying to find someone who
would repair and put a new crystal on it.  I don't want "restoration,"
just "fixing".

Do you have a recommendation?
